#Gorgeous #Fall #Color

Autumn is definitely here in the Ohio Valley and since I am busy preparing for a wonderful road trip to California with #BlogTourCali, I am re-posting a previous Autumnal post  I wrote.  Fall is such a gorgeous time of the year, don’t you agree?

Luxury in Contemporary Design

Thoughtful and provoking contemporary design of luxurious private residences in California has been made to look easy by John Finton of Finton Construction. Recently, Brizo sent to me John Finton’s book “California Luxury Living, A Private Tour”  to review.  Without exception, I found it an easy book to summarize as it overflowed cover to cover with drool worthy photography of a selection of the builder’s outstanding residential designs in California. Lucky California!

John Finton and Finton Construction’s work has been featured in multiple publications, platforms and has received numerous accolades. However, from a designer’s standpoint, the most important accolade(s) that an Interior Designer or Builder can receive are those of his or her client(s) which is quite evident here.  The well written yet brief introductions/chapters give the reader a clear sense of what each project entailed. The construction of these magnificent homes is truly inspirational and worthy of your attention.

What really stood out to me as I perused the colorful pages of this beautiful book, was the remarkable talent displayed in the execution of the full gamut of design/build. From the ultra contemporary to a modernist French Provincial to a beach home and even some historic renovation, the variety is definitely there.  This confirms that talented designers and builders can design and build well, regardless of the style, successfully. It takes vision.

Embedded below is John Finton’s self narrated YouTube video.  Opening shots will help you grasp the enormity of the design/build projects this company takes on.

One thing is for sure, you will have difficulty finding the page numbers listed in the Table of Contents due to the extraordinarily high number of full page photographs. To sum it up in a word, LUXURY. I recommend this book for every avid design lover.
